The Morogoro Mission Project: Tanzania which is a Poultry Project was launched in our church weekend of 9th/10th September 2017. This project is to help the people of Kunganya (10kms from Morogoro) and in particular the families (Mawaso Mema Group) affected by the recent demolition of houses after the government claimed they were built on the forest reserve unlawfully. Many families are now in a helpless financial situation. This project will produce poultry for selling thus empowering and enabling economic independence and sustainability; using the income for food, health and education for themselves and their children. The cost of the project is £2800 for building materials – chickens, veterinary medicines and poultry food with members of the Masaso Mema Group providing the labour, transport, etc.. The project will be under the care of Father Brown Cyprian Mvanda, a Consolata Missionary working in Tanzania who has undertaken to provide regular feedback and updates in the building progress. The Financing Agent is the Officio de Progretti Missioni Consolata in Rome. We would like to thank our parishioners for their great generosity last weekend when £940 was raised towards the cost of the project. In order to reach our target of £2800 we will be having various activities until June 2018 with Christmas stalls, coffee mornings, an International evening etc… Further announcments of our activities will be made in our weekly newsletter. Once again, many thanks for your generosity and we would be grateful for your prayers and further support to help us reach this goal.
